Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity seats available

Experience firsthand some of the challenges and frustrations that children with learning differences, dyslexia and/or ADHD face on a daily basis with reading, writing, and processing. Parents are invited to attend this hands-on simulation, to see learning through these students’ eyes. Understanding students’ experience is an essential part of addressing their behaviors and needs. Rotate among learning stations that simulate language-related tasks that may occur in the classroom. Leaders will guide participants through each 10-minute station.
The CAC/PTAC/REEL partnership was formed in May 2019, to bring this simulation to PAUSD teachers as a part of their professional development and the district's strategy for educating students with learning differences like dyslexia.
